“ Play is a powerful learning tool. Engaging students in activities they enjoy makes learning fun. Dragon Times includes a delightful set of 42 dragon / number cards created with common attributes to link sets of numbers (e.g. two headed dragons are multiples of 10, square number dragons breathe fire). ” Read More

“ My kids have always had trouble remembering multiplication tables. They love using Dragon Times to practice. I love that they pick up patterns from the tables and pictures as they memorize the facts. The art is beautiful and the game is fun. I never have to work to convince them to play! ”
Practicing Times Tables becomes a magical adventure as children save the Amazing Dragons of Times using the Dragon Wizard's spells. Children learn about factors, multiples, and division while saving and taming Dragons and restoring peace in a magical land. We have successfully play-tested the game in a grade 4/5 class.
The game started as a way of encouraging my seven-year-old boy to practice the multiplication tables and it became a fun project for the whole family. I am a primary school teacher and I designed the game with the help of my boy's ages 5, 8 and 10 (also the actors in the video). Read the story on how we worked on this project.
Depending on the child's level, the game can be simplified for the training wizards and become challenging and competitive for the masters. The game is made for children ages 6 and up. It 's for 2 or more players or teams/pairs. It can be played in many different ways.
